This was a great model that sat for us at the New School. She also sat for a few poses for Dana Levin. The results of those paintings were pretty spectacular. The model had another part time job working with autistic children in Providence. Most models have a part time job on the side, even the famous Ernesto. This drawing is one of the rare times where I added some form modeling in the lights, particularly on the leg.
I have dozens of small figure drawings that I did while studying at the New School of Classical Art in Providence. The head instructor of the school was Dana Levin, whose work is pretty fantastic, check out her website if you get a chance (http://danalevin.com/). I plan to highlight each of these small figures individually writing about the process involved and give people insight into the models' lives as well.
